Blog Tour - For Elise



About the book: In the sprawling gardens of their neighboring estates, childhood friends Miles and Elise spent countless pleasant days together in the spirited adventures of youth. They were inseparable—until Elise vanished without a trace. Miles searched, but Elise could not—or would not—be found . . .

After years spent laboring on the family plantation in the West Indies, Miles Linwood is shocked by the unexpected news: he has inherited his uncle’s estate and the title of Marquess of Grenton. Miles’s return to England is tarnished by only one thing—he is still haunted by Elise’s mysterious disappearance. So when he glimpses a woman with a startling resemblance to his lost friend, he’s shaken to the core. This is no mere shadow of the past: it is truly Elise. But his dear friend has changed—to the point that he questions whether it is really her, though he knows it is. Accustomed to rescuing Elise from childhood escapades, Miles takes her and those in her care back to his estate, even as he struggles to understand her fear and mistrust. As their friendship and feelings slowly blossom again, the shocking truth of their separated years is revealed, and Miles realizes more than ever that he must protect Elise. She slipped away once, and he cannot lose her again.

My review: I LOVED this book. I love Miles, I think he's my favorite of Sarah Eden's male heroes yet. I love how Miles is looking for the young woman who was his best friend growing up, Elise, even though she's been missing for several years with no word to anyone. When he finds her, and she seems to have changed everything about her, Miles is so loving and tries to do everything that he can for Elise, even though she keeps pushing him away for reasons that he can't fathom. I really like Elise too, I like how you really don't know just why Elise disappeared and why she keeps pushing Miles away, even though you see the story through her eyes. I love the setting too, Sarah Eden is a master of the regency romance category. This story kept me guessing from the very beginning. I can't even begin to tell you how much I loved it. I didn't want to put it down!

I was able to go to one of Sarah Eden's launch and signing parties for this book, and I have to tell you just how amazing she is. The line to meet with her was so long. The event was supposed to have gone from 6-7:30 pm. At about 8:30 pm I was finally able to get to her table to visit with her and I know there was at least one more person behind me. The last I heard, the event actually got over closer to 9:00 and she was kind, personable and amazing to every last person there. I love meeting my favorite authors, and I love it even more when they are as amazing as Sarah Eden.

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
